Nothing beats a hot toastie on a cold winter’s day and Sammy’s in Mt Hawthorn have just released their Truffle and Gruyere Toastie. Executive chef Scott Bridger says the toastie is loaded with gruyere and mozzarella. Fresh truffle is shaved between the buttered layers of bread and wrapped overnight so the truffle infuses into the sandwich. It’s then toasted until the cheese is oozing.
